Alec Baldwin sat down with ABC News's George Stephanopoulos for his first official interview since the fatal shooting on the set of his film Rust the film's cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins, and wounded its director, Joel Souza.
The actor used his calm NPR voice but was incredibly defensive, insisting that he didn't pull the trigger, and is "not responsible" for the tragedy.
The bullet was discharged from a gun in his hand on the set of the Western being filmed in New Mexico. He argued that somebody else accidentally placed a live round in the gun that went off while he was rehearsing a scene.
"Someone put a live bullet in a gun, a bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be on the property," Baldwin said.
Asked if he felt guilt, he said "no," as he is not to blame: "Someone is responsible for what happened, and I can’t say who that is, but I know it’s not me."
